Agreed. Enjoy both but completely different.

Agreed. Enjoy both but completely different.
Yep, we can safely says yours is pre-2009 lol
Mine has the EdT Concentree bit below Chanel. Purchased from Debenhams 2009 iirc.
Just checked - Batch code says Jan 2009 production.
EdT is very nice with reasonable performance for the genre. Parfum is a stunning, but different fragrance with superb performance.
Aomassai for me

1805 by Beaufort London. It's a stormy ride, for sure lol
Think the name has been changed now.
LOL. In this case I must agree though, it is pretty dull.
Not by a country mile IMO. I quite like it as a casual, warmer weather scent.
Some folk on here do not want the Guerlains, Diors etc of this world to produce fragrances with mass appeal lol. As...
DSquared - potion royal black
Parfums Rosine - Rossisimo (sp?)
The Cartier is good also
33 by Ex Idolo
It's an odd one for me, for sure. Cannot really smell it even from the off. Maybe needs a bit of air in the bottle. What little I can smell is nice, though it gets quite powdery later on - that much...
LOL I love the orangey cheesieness in OA. How did you find TH strength? It is barely there for me, never known one like it.
I have Oud Assam and T Habanero. I do like the former though, based on the reviews, I was expecting a lot more. Once the beautiful cheesieness fades it dies to a boring woody incense as Aphex...
Gao is the one for me.
Although there is a plethora of other notes, Nishane's Musiqa Oud is a very nice Oud Saffron
GIT is a thing of beauty. Go easy on the trigger, it is deceptively potent.
Just wasn't what I hoped it would be. I am a fan of both tea and oud fragrances so my expectations were high. Fragrance was not appealing to my nose and had poor longevity,
Current is well worth it IMO and I do have some vtg to compare.
Tried it recently, was very underwhelmed.............
Afrika Olifant by Nishane
Both are stunning fragrances. Try both and you will end up getting both :D
Dihydromyrcenol? esp in GIT.
So, which one is you Jack? :evil:
Bentley for Men Intense 2
Pure Havane 6
1740 Marquis de Sade 1
Dior Homme Intense 4
Musc Ravageur 5
M7 vintage 3
Spiritueuse Double Vanille not tried
Dior Homme for me
Sounds like an interesting idea. I like to think I would be able to get the majority correct, certainly of those I use regularly...............
I concur with OPs assessment. I like DA - a lot - but XXV is other worldly.
Agree with Jack above, nothing like the beast you might expect. Very quiet on first wearing so added another spray second time to be able to smell it.
An ok fragrance but certainly not FBW for me....
I only keep Givenchy Pi at this temperature. Everything else at ambient UK conditions
I have and love DH (my favourite), DHP and DHI (original). A great line
When was the change in bottle/formulation?
I have the 'new' bottle with cap and I bought this in 2008/9 IIRC
Rania J's Oud Assam.
Bottega Veneta pH
I thought so, too.
After an initial sampling I found this to be vile. On me, I had v little to no smoke/gunpowder (2 of my favourites) and the the metallic blood/sea water accord was dominant...
Just ordered samples - sound fantastic!
MiB is nice but the Bentley outperforms it IMO
Not surprised at the compliment, it is a wonderful fragrance IMO.
6 sprays though :shocked: ................ :thumbsup:
It's a long time since I tried it (and didn't like it) and my memory may be clouded but I seem to recall CDG 2 Man has a waxy vibe????
Great thread, made me chuckle!
FPs don't bother me btw
I don't store any in the bathroom but I agree with what you say absolutely. Cosmetic damage to the label/box is probably as bad as it gets.
For those that say it will ruin a fragrance do you have...
Love this one!
Also interested in this, but no sight of it yet. Anyone tried it?
I have the original and extreme. Whilst I prefer the scent of the original (there are subtle differences to me) the performance sucks, which is addressed in the extreme. B oth are very, very nice.
I think Hednic means if considering the Montale line, the closest is Montale Original Aoud.
+1 Beautiful, subtle fragrance
Wow, I get very good performance and also like it a lot. From my distant recollection Bulgari Man Extreme is somewhat similar
Depends on the volume and how it smells. If it represents a good deal then yes, I would buy.
Homme is discontinued also and does not have the same sharp freshness. As above try Bulgari Man Extreme or, for a twist with a big lavender hit, code ice.
Some of the above can be found in tubereuse criminelle (sp?)
Not tried so many, but of those I have then Gentlemen is the best and one of my favourites in general
Bulgari Man Extreme.
Something a bit different - Code Ice
Al Rehab Silver x 3
Can't say I prefer it to SMW, but the price differential for a maybe 75% similar fragrance cannot be ignored IMO
Beautiful, beautiful fragrance with v good longevity.
I have both and find both a bit 'plasticy'. PRB is more versatile IMO.
If it were a genuine 'you can only have 1', I'd go Hermes (I think!). Both are great and very different, so if you don't have this constraint, buy both.
Weak and expensive. There is much, much better available for your money.
Still a very subtle fragrance; longer lasting than the original but very close to the skin. The pine freshness of the original seems to have been abandoned. Different yet similar to the original....
Bulgari Man Extreme
I'll have to try it. Just because many people on here don't rate it, doesn't make it bad or controversial. As a business, Guerlain have to move with the times - I like MdM, but I bet they don't shift...
What's controversial about it?
2 bottles of Bulgari Black
Guerlain homme l'eau, Armani code ice
Xerjoff''s Gao would be my recommendation. Seriously dark, seriously saffron.
It's nice, but I have to admit to being a little disappointed with it. Must try again.
Jubilation, hands down.
Same here. Interlude (magnetic) is a fragrance Godzilla
XX Irony Alert XX
I have the magnetic cap. It was a long time ago that I first tried Interlude, but to me there is little difference to my bottle that I can recall. Perhaps it has been tamed but it is still nuclear...
Do I hear jangling in the distance..........
Interlude is my favourite
Another is TF's Amber Absolute if you can get a bottle
I don't claim to be correct here. I accept that my nose may be playing tricks on me, though I don't believe this to be the case. OTOH you seem to be incapable of accepting that other people may have...
I'll chip in. I also am a Chemist, though not a flavour fragrance chemist. Alcohols and aldehydes are present in alarge number of perfumes and as tensor has said, they are prone to oxidation. Now the...
Zafar by Xerjoff
I recently bought a bottle of vintage. All I can say is that the current bottle I have (2-3 years old) is an excellent rendition of the vintage. Very slightly less rich, but much closer than I was...
If you like a mundane fragrance then oud wood is your man.
Black XS. I'm in my 40's
This!! I probably have 70 of 75 ml left but wore it last night - heavenly
Kenzo pour Homme
Although I love the Colonia, Epic Man is about as close as it gets to Masterpiece for me.
Don't care much for Oud Wood, it is a bit wishy-washy and several leagues below the other two.
Glad you are happy with your purchases!
Parfumerie Generale's Coze is a nice coffee-woods combo
Has to be Encre Noir
Thanks for the suggestion guys. I have a few of those mentioned inc Lonestar Memories - I'm really after some more aggressive and less sweet. Think CdG sounds a good option and will have to look at...
As title really, any recommendations?
I find warrior by Boadicea to have long lasting citrus notes.
Same for me, unfortunately.
Welcome back Vibert! as others have said your reviews were excellent and I will be glad to have them back as a reference.
Am I missing something re your 'misdemeanours'? I don't remember seeing...
Agree, a v nice fragrance. I don't get rose as a major player, which is good.
Royal oud also. Far from my favourite but miles better than Dia. One of Amouage's worst for me.
Haven't tried Declaration L'eau.
You can't go far wrong with either Bulgari's Aqua or Cartier's Roadster IMO
Chris Bartlett on here - Pell Wall Perfumes - offers a bespoke service.
Congratulations to your son Chuck (and also to the rest of the family). What will he be studying?
Maybe you can experiment with some layering/combos of your existing fragrances.
Best of luck...
Roadster for me, but careful with the trigger.
I find OW boring and sans oud.
Bang on for me.
